My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records – never…EVER. Because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again. End of story.
But why are the college records, of a 51 year old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.
If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then – Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia has ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.
Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging for Obama’s dirty secrets??????
Bush, Reagan, and a few others NEVER presented their college transcripts...Are you outraged with them as well?

Unlike you, Obama, also graduated Harvard Law and became 44th president of these United States.

You should concern yourself less with dirty little secrets and try to use that fancy Columbia degree, according to you, for something less obtuse.

According to who?

FOX, teabagger "news" opinion sites and you?

Seal the records of the president?

The Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978, 44 U.S.C.§§ 2201–2207, is an Act of Congress of the United States governing the official records of Presidents and Vice Presidents created or received after January 20, 1981, and mandating the preservation of all presidential records. The PRA changed the legal ownership of the official records of the President from private to public, and established a new statutory structure under which Presidents must manage their records.

Executive order 12667-Issued by President Reagan in January 1989, this executive order established the procedures for NARA and former and incumbent Presidents to implement the PRA.
Executive Order 13233 - This executive order, issued by President George W. Bush on November 1, 2001, supersedes the previous executive order. The Bush executive order also includes the documents of former Vice Presidents.
Executive Order 13489 - Issued by President Barack Obama on January 21, 2009, restored the implementation of the PRA of 1978 as practiced under President Reagan's Executive Order 12667 and revoked President Bush's Executive Order 13233.

I agree, wasting my time.

BTW, you never posted Mitt's college records.

Google that.

If you consider the fact under Clinton 40% of the welfare people in each state were mandated to look for a job, and you have Obama redefining the defination of Work, saying resting is work, studying is work, helping someone study is work, maeaning you don't really have to work then the Presidents' policies do make it easy to lay around idle, and still get welfare.

Why would a black who came here from Jamaica or from Nigeria three years ago, need “reparations” to pay for what happened to a black slave over 100 years ago?

I am choosing to focus on this single aspect of your narrative.

I have noticed over the years that there is a real difference in overall attitude between American blacks and those who have recently emigrated to America. It is hard to define, but the emigrants seem more upbeat, without any trace of a defeatist attitude that the native Blacks sometimes seem to have. Yes, this is some very raw stereotyping!

This is NOT to knock anyone! I just think that those who grew up in a very racist nation (America) still have personal and/or family memories of racial horror stories. I mean, just how many white Americans may have an uncle or a grandfather that was lynched by a mob wearing white sheets and marching with burning crosses? How many white Americans EVER knew the searing indignity of being refused service in restaurants, or shoved to the back of the bus, or being denied their right to vote in elections SIMPLY BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR? Don't forget that America was an apartheid country less than six decades ago!

This is my stab at parlor sociology/anthropology.

When you fix the problems in Obama's old Chicago neighborhood, the killing, the unwillingness to work, or take responsibility for their children, families without fathers, women with several men in their lives, children running wild, then tell me why anyone would want those people in their neighborhood. I damn sure won't live in a neighborhood like that, and they don't want to fix i t. In fact the Democrats have to keep those people just as they are so they can manage them.

Obama and Biden do not know medical and health care, social engineering and welfare to work, economics, public stand, foreign policy and many true things. Many democrats have been left behind. This is the time for people of all persuasions to make it for themselves, by going for doing something good -- to elect the new direction.

Very clearly and decisively, the people know best to do for themselves as that is the only way --Romney & Ryan, being the 2012 change.

The utmost measures people have to take to elect the new future, definitely vest on the responsibilities and mature rationality of all the people to go ahead to getting this done.

Romney-Ryan would be the perfect future for USA. Romney and Ryan can forge ahead what needed to be done to move ahead for US people. The critical phrase of US people facing is beyond economics, as there is not any intrinsical value or message of any benefits shown by Obama and Biden.
As of present time, Obama-Biden acts restrict freedom value of people's belief, including religion and social freedom of preferences of choice of all walks of life, as they dictate that people have to be mixed and be mixed up.

Only Romney and Ryan can open up the broad scope of avenue for all free choices for all people, in regard to welcoming, or rejecting unwanted elements--like association with drug lords and so on.

Mr. Romney had demonstrated as a viable statesman in his overseas trip. Unlike the way of Obama speaking as if he looks like sleeping during speech all the time, Romney spoke eloquently in England, Poland and Isreal.

Romney aspired matters by being communicative and alert all the time WHEN GOING ON A FOREIGN TRIP, showing his functioning ability as a president would.

Obama has not conducted any work in economic recovery by making the destruction of existing and future economics of all freedom people.

It appears Obama is short of ability --in comparison to Romney, due to Obama's lacking capable skills and effective communication.

Obama has shown dismal weight in his stand and deposition. Obama cannot exhibit like a remarkable figure.

Somehow, Obama has been leading some people astray, owing to lacking any performance in his public acts. Obama regards the importance for private intimacy acts with spouse or kins, more than the working tasks of doing public policy and enactment. Any public figure should take aside the moments of intimacy gestures during a basketball game or other unrelated activities, to concentrate in the performing public position of the job, including the president.

It is time for those people who have been feeling confused because of Obama, to wake up to the consciousness.

It is time to be embracing a new future, in order to become constructive and productive, to be guided by the next President and Vice President-- Romney and Ryan for 2012--to be elected.
